Rugby
Defensive blowout - Fitness games session
Rating: 3
from 3 members ratings

This plan gets players working hard throughout, improving their rugby fitness without doing any dull fitness exercises.

How can you avoid dull fitness drills?

By using the fast-paced drills and conditioned games in this plan. This is a training your players will relish. It is aggressive and competitive, but will also provide you with a lot of information about your players' ability to tackle and close down space.

What's in the Session?

To get your players tackling effectively we begin with a physical warm up game of "Avoid the bags" and then move swiftly on to the serious business of tackling - getting your players to:

*Keep their eyes on the attackers' hips
*Force the attackers onto their outside shoulder and
*Drive low into contact

The final challenge for your players is a physically demanding full pitch game with a difference, playing across the width of the pitch to test their fitness levels and ability to close down space.
